Motorola outs new Moto G with 4G in Brazil

Before 2014 ended, we noted that a new Moto G is coming to Brazil with 4G/LTE connectivity and a bigger battery. It wasn't exactly a rumor because it was spotted on Motorola's Brazilian website. We didn't have to wait long as the Lenovo-owned Motorola has just launched a new version of the 2nd-generation Moto G in the country. Main features are still the same but with the addition of 4G support and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Photo of 2nd-gen Moto E leaked

We haven't heard much about the Moto E but a recent rumor gives us an idea that the 2nd-generation might be coming soon. It's another budget smartphone alright because the Moto E was popular in the cheap phone category with its sub-$150 price tag. And now that Motorola is owned by Lenovo, there's more reason for the mobile group to work harder than before.

Motorola shows some #Motolove with big discounts for Valentines

Motorola wants us all to have a happy Valentines. No, the company isn't wishing you would find the love of your life (you wish!) but just fall in love with a new phone like the new Moto X or the Moto 360 smartwatch. Of course, this sweet deal could also be the perfect Valentines gift to your geeky significant other.

Motorola comes back to China

We already know that Motorola has officially returned to China. The company brings new smartphones and wearable choices to the emerging market. All these are happening because Lenovo's purchase of Motorola has been finally completed three months ago. This also means consumers in China have more choices now when it comes to smartphones (not that there aren't enough choices available...). Motorola is bringing the following models to China: Moto Hint (wearable), Moto G, Moto X Pro, and the Moto X.

Apple may have bitten off Nexus 6’s ‘missing’ fingerprint sensor

It turns out that Apple may have been responsible not just for the seeming current downturn in innovating its own products, but contributing to some "missing" parts in the competition as well. Notice that cute "dimple" behind Google's Nexus 6 -- manufactured by Motorola hence the dimple has Motorola's logo? Well, news has come out that it should have been a tappy fingerprint sensor. But circumstances have been so that Motorola wasn't able to include that in that final design.

Cablevision to offer mobile phone service through WiFi

As more and more people are using data more than SMS or calls on their mobile phone subscriptions, carriers will become even more competitive, but on a different frontier. But it looks like some Internet providers are also getting in on the action, but this time offering mobile phone services through their WiFi. One of the earliest to jump on this wagon is Cablevision with their new low-cost service called Freewheel.

Motorola releases app for managing voice mails

When you think of voice mail, it's not something that would excite you or would make you think of high-tech visual apps. All you would want is something that is practical and something that works. That is probably what Motorola was thinking when they created the Visual Voice Mail, which is not the most exciting app around, but gets (or should) the job done.

Motorola Migrate now with Material Design, contact transfers

Almost all apps on the Google Play Store continue with both design and feature updates as Android 5.0 Lollipop rolls out to various Android devices. If you're a new Motorola smartphone owner, then this updated app would be of necessity to you. Motorola Migrate now has a brand new visual design, as well as the ability to transfer contacts from your old device to your brand new smartphone.

More Motorola Lollipop updates rolling out soon

Motorola is working really hard to release Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for its latest devices. Luciano Carvalho, software engineer at Motorola Mobility Holdings, posted on his Google+ account that more Moto products are getting a taste of the sweet Lollipop this year. Even those older models from 2013 and 2014 will receive Android 5 so users can enjoy the new platform. Some Moto phone owners are reportedly receiving 5.0.2 updates. These are on-the-air (OTA) updates but are being released to a limited number of people only in different parts of the world. Once more people confirm that the Lollipop updates are good enough and if there are no big issues, Motorola will release the software update to more people.
